An Acer Revo R3610 with 3TB of external storage. It has 4GB of ram with a 500GB internal HDD, which has my Music on it. The externals house the videos. Everything is shared with NFS and I have MySQL database too. It works really well and can serve up 1080p video to 6 Kodi boxes at once.

What OS are you using?

Xubuntu 16.04.1 X64. I went to Xubuntu because I run that on all my other machines and decided that it would be better to have a common UI to make it easier for the wife and kids to use should they be forced to. If you don't want a UI then Ubuntu Server would be the best choice. If it were just me then that is what I would run as I do everything over SSH. If you do want a UI then I have been playing with Bodhi Linux and Xubuntu Core, which are as about as minimal as they come, because ideally I would like to get a 16GB SSD to reduce costs.
HTPCs: RPI 2B & 3B+ running LibreELEC 9.x.x
Control: Google Home + Broadlink RM Mini 3 + OSMC Remote
Audio: Pioneer VSX-819HK & S-HS 100 5.1 Speakers
Server: Acer ASX3400, 3GB RAM, 7.75TB, Xubuntu 18.04, NFS, MySQL
